Hello All,

I am new to Pari after using Landon Calc for a while, but had some
problems with it and thought that I would try a more advanced package
like Pari.

I just installed Pari on a Windows machine and tried a simple plot


it seems to have plotted the result in the text command space instead
of a graphical window.

'gp' has a pretty good documentation feature:

  gets you a brief description of "foo"; and

  gets you a more detailed description of "foo".

"foo" can be anything that 'gp' recognizes.  Finally,

> ???foo
will cause a search of the documentation for "foo" and print out the names of the entries where "foo" is found. Try
